Audio-Farm Progress America, January 12, 2017

Max Armstrong talks about black swan events and their potential to be good news for the U.S. farmer.

The idea that some new policies could create a "black swan" even for agriculture may not be bad for agriculture. Max Armstrong explores the concept of disruption risk, and that while many talk about black swan events as negative, it turns out that farmers may benefit from the trade and foreign policy issues that could impact the market.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
